I have so many good memories and will miss him. He loved his family and often told me that, said he was very lucky to have great kids and grandkids. How he ever came up with my nick name Wild Rose I'll never know and the expression on peoples faces that didn't know me when he would introduce me that way. It was like a moment of silence and then he'd say really she's a nice person. In lieu of flowers I bought onesies for the babies in the NICU unit at Children's Hospital.

Was so sorry to hear about Mr Kelly. I heard about it this morning when I got to work. I had the privilege to clean his room. He was such a sweet man. I am going to miss my morning hugs and hearing him call me his sexy she devil. He loved to joke around. Than he would apologize that he was sorry to be a dirty old man. Will be praying for all of you. Good bye Mr Kelly. I am going to miss you.

I am very sorry about your loss. Kelly was fun to talk with. He came to sweep the carpet at Brake Drug Store which my father Bill Brake owned. Kelly was always telling jokes and we all enjoyed his company.. After the store closed up I would still see him around town. May the Lord comfort you. Sincerely , Laura Brake
